The floating market was quaint and the fisherman and locals where friendly. We actually purchased a few souvenirs here as they had some unique wall metal art. The stores in town are crowded and have the same souvenirs. The market was the place to go.

Interesting to see. Fresh fruit is inexpensive, but tourists will find the other items less useful unless they have a kitchen. The large market building had more trinkets and stuff if you like that sort of thing.

The downtown area of Willemstad is very small. The floating market is only a few minutes walk from the bridge so you should at least take a look. During the week in the day time it acts as an old fashioned drive-thru to the locals....More

We visited Willemstad and decided to take a walk by the floating market. It was colorful but not much to see. We included it with a walk around town.

On a walking tour of Willemstad we spent some time at this floating market. Most of the boats are from Venezuela and the people are very nice.. most speak English or get the hand gestures. Very fun place to check out.

Interesting if combined with Emma bridge and/or other attractions. Just a few boats with their stalls on the pavement seling fruit, vegetables and fish. If you don't have much time in Curacao this is not a must see attraction.

The floating market is located on the Waaigat waterway a couple of blocks from the Old Market. Venezuelan boats bring fresh vegetables and fish and sell them from stalls on the quay in front of their boats. It is quite colorful and a good photo...More

Lovely fresh produce market however the vendors are quite pushy when u drive along. But they are a colorful sort and can barter prices if u really interested. Juicy mangoes ,lovely pawpaws,great oranges etc all just amazing when u are on a Caribbean holiday
